Debug Error Message


Level 4


I'm having a problem with an error message I'm getting. I'm working on my form, and all of a sudden a message pops up and says

"Debug Error! of file

abnormal program termination

(press Retry to debug the application).

So I hit Retry and then it closes my form.  This keeps happening to me over and over again, and I lose all of the changes I've made. Can anyone please explain why I am getting this error message?

Thank you,

I am not sure what the cause is and it may related to the version of LC Designer that you are using.

However here are some threads, which may be of help:

Designer ES crashes

Object Library Issue

Adobe Pro 9 - Livecycle

I would research these and make sure you are happy to proceed. You may lose your fragments and custom objects, so back these up first.

Good luck,

Thank you for your help Niall. I am using Livecycle version 8.2. Does this problem also occur with most updated version of Livecycle? And if not, what version would that be?
